“Once upon A Time Storybook Bible” was sent to me by Zonderkidz – a division of Zondervan Publishing – in exchange for my honest review.
“Once upon A Time Storybook Bible” is a children’s picture book illustrated by Omar Aranda.
There are thirty-three well-known Bible stories in this book, written for a young reader to understand. Included from the Old Testament are the story of creation, Adam and Eve, Noah’s Ark, Daniel and the Lion’s Den, and many more. From the New Testament are Jesus’s birth, Zacchaeus, Lazarus, Peter Walking on Water, Jesus’s death and resurrection, among others. Each story begins with a verse and a “Once upon a time…” story, then ends with a “Happily ever after…”admonishment, along with the verses where the story is found in the Bible. The pictures are frame-worthy, in my opinion…GORGEOUS!
I would recommend this to young readers and to those who read to them.
